New Internet Explorer Beta

Anyone else trying it out?
I like it so far.
The multiple home pages is pretty slick.

I'm guessing he means tabs -- like firefox.

I'll stick with firefox.

Re: New Internet Explorer Beta

last time I installed a "beta" version of something from Microsoft, I had to reinstall my operating system to fix the problems it created. Other than that, sure, I'd love to try IE beta. :

Bobby Bouchet's momma said it best: "Bill Gates is the Devil!"

Seriously, use Firefox and you'll be safer. IE is too big of a target and MS has a long history of reacting too slowly to threats to make it a trustworthy platform.

Naw, I'm a slave to Microsoft. I figured the tab thing was a rip off from Firefox, but never used firefox.

I enjoy reinstalling my OS every few months. I guess thats why I work in IT hehe.

Re: New Internet Explorer Beta

If I still had a 'banger machine' running, i'd try it, but I didnt see anything in the feature list that i'm not getting right now with firefox, so i'll let someone else be the guys with the arrows in their backs pioneers...

Re: New Internet Explorer Beta

Heh, tough crowd. (Posted using FireFox.)

When I get some time I'll use the free version of VMWare Server to install a WinXP image and try out IE7 beta, but I'm busy packing and burying bodiestying up loose ends at work.

Bimmerbill, have you used the RSS feature yet? I think it's called "My Feeds" in IE7. This site should lite up your icon.

I get the following error:

valign="top"> More information

Re: New Internet Explorer Beta

That's odd...valign="top" shouldn't have anything to do with RSS. Wonder what IE7 is up to? I'll have to check it out...maybe this weekend.

Re: New Internet Explorer Beta

Lately I've been using Opera . It has most of the firefox featues (like security and tabbed browsing) and it's a lot faster and leaner.

I like Firefox's features, and that it's open, but there are a few things that really bug me. Like the memory usage, crashes, and pdf plugin sluggishness.

For example, I just ran a quick test on the two browsers, both with 6 tabs open to the same pages. Firefox is using 2x the memory. Opera feels snappier too. So, if you're on an older machine you might want to give it a try.
